The above sign is in the little “apartment” that we have over our garage. I retreated there the other day while Chris was on business calls and I wanted to read. As I sat on the couch I looked at that little sign that I had gotten at TJMaxx a long time ago and it made me pause. Yes, it is a choice. A daily choice. One that I choose to make every single day that I can.
Some days it is much easier to choose happy than others. There is a lot weighing on all of us these days with all of the concern and restrictions due to COVID – 19. But I refuse to give into fear and worry and am consciously choosing happy over the other options.
It’s funny how one little comment on Facebook can spark happy. A friend posted in a Brevard based group that she wanted to do some type of food drive to help those who are struggling right now. Another woman jumped into the conversation along with me and after a lot of brainstorming, messages and phone calls it was decided to start within our own community of Connestee Falls. Within 36 hours the plan was fleshed out, permission obtained, publicity created and the following event will be happening on May 2nd.
It makes me HAPPY to be able to be a small part of what we hope will be a huge success.
Today I choose happy. I hope that you are able to choose happy as well. Oh and another reason to be happy today – our oldest son turns 35. Happy Birthday, Micah. YOU make me happy.
Tell me – what makes you happy? Do you see anything around you that has anything to do with the COVID -19 pandemic that you can find happiness in? I would love to hear all about it. Please leave me a comment and remember to Comment for a Cause – WHO COVID -19 Solidarity Fund.
